High Risk

TRAIN TO BE Deadly

ASSET OR LIABILITY

What are You?

Liability = “A person or thing whose presence or behavior is likely to cause embarrassment or put one at a disadvantage.”

Asset = “A useful or valuable thing, person, or quality.”

As an asset you are HARD TO KILL and DANGEROUS to your opposition. In this world we depend on our body for EVERYTHING. It acts as our VEHICLE, WEAPON, and SHIELD. More importantly though, our body acts as a LIFE SAVING FORCE for those who depend on us most. This path is all about making you the most balanced athlete you can be so that no matter what the task ahead is, you are PREPARED to CONQUER it. Those who work in a high risk environment face many unique challenges and cannot afford to let their fitness be their limiting factor because it is then that the stakes are highest and the consequence of being unfit will likely cost you or someone else life or limb. Don’t be that guy (or girl).
